Boyd is a retired educator, and his passion for helping young people is evident. He retired from Jones County High School after working in education for 31 years. Many of those years was as a football coach and the last 12 years he served in an administrative capacity.
Boyd was invited to the Jan. 8,Rotary Club meeting to talk about his fund-raising efforts for a new field house at the Jones County High School football field. He took up the cause that began in February of 2012 by head football coach Dwight Jones.
The educator started talking about the Hold the Rope Foundation, the nonprofit that was formed for the fund-raising efforts.
“This field house will benefit every JCHS student who wants to improve themselves,” he said.
Boyd noted that he was blessed growing up. He said his family was not well to do, but he always had people around to support him. In his years in education, Boyd knows that is not always the case.
